Our youth and children’s programmes wouldn’t run without the help of volunteers and we want to thank everyone who gives of their time to help in their various roles. The organisations are off at the moment for the Summer break but we think this is a good time to express our need for more helpers in various groups. A few of our young who play a big role in Unlabelled, Unique and E.P.I.C (our youth programmes) are heading off to university come September which will leave us quite short for leaders. We urge that you take time to think and pray before you make a decision but if you would be interested in volunteering with our young people either on a rota basis or a year commitment please speak to Aimee Gibson.

Activities for Week commencing  12th March 2018


Churches are able to claim a refund of £0.25 from the Inland Revenue for every £1 a tax-paying parishioner gives to the church.  

Currently, the vestry estimates that we are missing out on a possible extra £5000 because not everyone who qualifies for Gift Aid has signed up to it.

If you are unsure whether or not you qualify, or are already signed up, or simply want to find out more information, please lift a Gift Aid form from the back of church and contact our treasurer.

Further details can also be found inside the 2016 Financial Report

Gift Aid Coordinator

At the last meeting of the Select Vestry, Elizabeth McBurney was appointed as the Parish Gift Aid Coordinator to assist the Honorary Treasurer, Angela Sloan, in the administration of the Gift Aid Scheme.  Liz will be seeking to expand the number of people who are eligible to gift aid their contributions to their Free Will Offerings.  If you are a tax payer not already signed up then Liz or Angela are the persons to speak to.
